How Love in Action Quells Disagreemnents

A testimony from someone overseas:

I can't thank God enough for the DHT training I've received through JGLM.  I don't know what I'd have done without it today. 

At about 12 pm today, a motorcycle rammed into the back of our car.  Thank God he did it right in front of policemen.  When we went to the police station to report the incident.  He claimed I was the one at fault, but I did not even have to defend myself:  the policeman who escorted us there vehemently declared otherwise.  The policemen at the station advised us to settle the issue between us since there were no serious injuries involved. I offered to forgive the man and repair the damage to our car, but urged him to admit hat he was the one who caused the accident.  This he reluctantly did.

That done, I escorted him to his motorcycle, which, surprisingly, had sustained hardly any damage. He was limping due to a nasty cut and some bumps he had sustained.  I explained that I am a Christian and wanted to pray for his leg.  After apologising profusely for what he'd done, he allowed me to pray, and praise God, all pain left and the bumps disappeared, and the cut looked far less angry.

I shared the gospel with him and gave him a tract.  I then explained what had happened to some para-military police that had been watching us - how God had turned a potentially nasty situation around to demonstrate his love and power.  Each of them accepted a gospel tract. 

Praise God!

Sermon by Garth Wiebe

You lay hands on the sick and expect them to get well. Not not next week. Expect them to get well now. Because sickness is an enemy. it is not from God it is from the devil. Luke 10:19 He has given us authority to trample on snakes and scorpions. and over all the power of the enemy. Nothing will harm you.

In a week I will be gone. I expect to take nothing with me. because I don't have anything that you don't have. Everything I have you have. Why? Because we have the same Holy Spirit. The only difference is whether you believe that. Jn 14:12 says we can do greater things. It will be my great joy to see you prosper and healthy, and to see the demons gone. And even raise the dead. You do not need an expert for that. Because Jesus has all authority. And He is in you. Amen.

This week you must stop going to experts for healing . Go to each other. Your pastor and your elders. And they will hands on you and they will bless you. I am just repeating the words o God. Eph 1:3 We are blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realm. And if we are blessed in heavenly realms we are blessed on earth. Because we know the prayer that says the kingdom come they will be done on earth as it is in heaven. You know this prayer. In all cultures we know it. Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Matt 6:10 Jesus will come and declare it. So we do as Jesus did. God has already blessed us. He has paid for your sins. So He is not angry with us anymore. We has his favor. Which is what grace means. And so we live like we believe this. Because God is good all the time. He is waiting for us to believe that. So we are blessed. You are blessed. Amen

He was never in need. He always walked in authority. He always walked in confidence. And He was not afraid of anything. He did not know fear. When he was speaking in his own home town. He said some things that made the town people mad at him. He was not afraid to speak the truth. And they were so mad they took him to the cliff to throw him down. While they were doing that. ... He walked with confidence. And when they got to the cliff to throw him down. He turned around and walked through the crowd and walked away. Because He knew His time had not come. He still had work to do on the earth.

It was after the Passover that He was to die. Another time His disciples told him that Herod wants to kill you. And He said go tell that fox, that I will proclaim the kingdom of God in this village and that village. His time had not come. He was not afraid. Now you walk that confidence . Proclaim the blessings over each other.

When you see someone who is questioning this, say, no I proclaim victory over you in the name of Jesus. Because you are confident and your words are powerful. When you see a person sick. You say be healed in Jesus name. That is a blessing. Sickness is a course. Jesus took upon himself the whole curse. So we are proclaiming a truth. You are proclaiming the word of God is true.
